Elementary School

 

The Elementary School at Beacon seeks to form a foundation for each student to develop his/her full potential and expand his/her social and cultural repertoire. 

Literacy consolidation, the continuing development of oral communication and the ability to express oneself in Portuguese and English, the understanding of scientific issues, the expansion of research skills and student´s posture awareness are deeply rooted in our Primary Years Program.

We focus on the development of values and skills such as dialogue, group work, tolerance, and mutual respect, which will help students to become responsible citizens, critical, reflective and active beings, who are principled and open-minded; citizens of the 21st century.

A challenging curriculum in each area is structured with specific learning objectives that are appropriate for each grade level.

We are a community that develops the sense of collectivity and collaborative work.
